Video Conferencing Around the World 2008
Excerpts from the Executive Summary:
The adoption of video conferencing products and services is not uniform throughout the world. As discussed in several Brockmann & Company reports studying the service in various industries, MidMarket and by desktop and room-based reports, video conferencing is on a growth curve. It promises to break through the niche barriers in the coming years.
This report defines the perspective of our global business user panel and presents regional variances for discussions. In some parts of the world, for cultural, historical, telecom regulatory and economic reasons there is tremendous diversity in adoption, practice and potential. Clearly, regions do matter.
Recommendations for users including comparing your own experience with that of the regional peers, measure reliability of their implementation so as to compare with prospective competitive solutions and to consider the concierge service of the telepresence managed service provider.
